TACOMA, March 215th, Our party from Albert Lea for Tacoma started Feb. 18tli, and stopped at St. Paul some time to look over the city and visit friends. left there in the evening over the Canada 1'acilic rail- road, whose oilicers treated us kindly. There were about 2a persons in our ear, and we had plenty of room. All the passengers on our train were quiet and orderly people, but I felt most at home with our own party. Of ladies we had very few, iliss Birdie Jhirker be- ing the only one in our car. Women j do not travel much through this coun- try, which accounts for the high wages received by the servant girls here. The tirst night the thermometer fell to below zero, but we slept well and comfortably. The scenery along the road, after "we got a certain distance from St. i'aul, was nothing to brag of, all level prairie, with an occasional in- habited dwelling (a miserable hut) to break the monotony. 1 was told that from 20 to 40 bushels of wheat per acre could be raised on these prairies, but nothing could induce me to settle here. Around Grafton and Auburn in Uako- ta we saw some timber, and it looked as though some prosperous farmers lived there. AVhen we got within a couple of hundred miles of the moun- tains the country looked more barren, and was inhabited only by the police and the workmen at the stations. We had police on the train in Canada most of the time. The weather has been nice but very cold, with clear sky every day, and hardly any snow on the prai- rie. A number of Indians came on the train and sold buffalo horns at from 75c. to 81.50 per pair. As we came up in the mountains it grew colder, and the snow got deeper, and at one place a terrible snow storm was raging. The track is laid on the side of the moun- tains and along the rivers as much as possible, and consequently it is very crooked. We saw some magnificent sights here; looking up we could hard- ly see the top of the mountains, and 200 or 300 feet below us we could see the sparkling waters of the river. The crevices and gulches which the road runs over are bridged, and it seems awful to cross them. We passed through several tunnels and snow sheds. Small trees are growing on the mountains, and people live au along the road; their homes are miserable shanties, built of round logs. As we came near Vancouver the snow disap- peared, and grazing cattle were seen on every hand. From Vancouver we went with steamer to Victoria, then changed boat for Tacoma, laid to at Port Townsend and Seattle, and ar- rived at Tacoma on the 23d, at a p. m. We were now at our journey's end, and a very pleasant one it had been. J. H. Parker met us at the wharf, and we were soon lost in the city. I went up town and found my brother P. H. Nel- son and family hale and hearty, and well satisfied with the city of Tacoma. It has rained considerably since I came here, but it comes down still and never pours down as it does in Minne- sota. There has not been a day but what people have worked out doors since I came here. The streets are dry and level, and run north and south; they are hand- somely laid out, and eleven are graded about three miles. The city is located at the head of Commencement Bay on a hillside, about 300 feet above the sea, The streets lie one above the other like benches in a circus tent, and the bay can be seen by all. The panoramic view is magnificent; before you are the calm waters of the bay and the green foliage of the islands m the sound, and behind are the Cascade mountains and the great monarch Mt. Tacoma reach- ing heavenward feet. The moun- tains are 60 miles away, but it looks as though it is only an hour's walk to them. There is quite a building boom here, 250 houses being under construc- tion, keeping over 1000 carpenters busy, but there are many unable to ob- tain employment. A good deal of work is being done on the streets and sewers, but hundreds of common la- borers are inquiring for work every day. This is no place for a poor man to come to; people here have no time to sympathize with them. The city is for the capitalists, and I am satisfied to leave it to them. Real estate is very high, and has doubled in value the past year. No farming land can be found near Tacoma, the soil being gravelly and covered with stones. Tacoma has 6 school houses, a semi- nary, and 19 churches, and it also has 47 saloons. I don't know how many inhabitants it has, but people are pour- ing in here every day. II. E. Which we will Positively Sell at what the Material Alone would Cost. Our first year here was so remarkably successful that AVC are determined to give even Better Bargains in v 1889. We have found that the people appreciate good goods, close profits, and ONE PRICE TO ALL. ONE price to all still holds good, and it is plainly marked on every article. More than this: We Guarantee every article to be as represented, and if there is the least dissatisfaction or complaint in any case, we will take the goods back or make the bargain good in cash. This is Square Dealing; it is right, and we have found that it wins. We extend a cordial invitation to all to call whether they want to buy or not.

I came here about a month ago; Bartholomew (my friend from Chicago) and myself biiiight a controll- ing interest in litickli-y Lumber Co.; a stock company was "organized last August and run by a lot of inex- perienced men. Wr reorganized the company and are now running it on the Minneapolis plan. We are cutting feet per day of ten hours, and can sell three times that amount. trude is almost entirely east of the Cascades, but we can go "right into Ta- coma and compete with any of them if we choose. Our lumber is' about oue- :hird each lir, spruce and cedar while :he mill at (Jig Harbor has scarcely lotliiug but lir. Spruce is per cent ighter to ship than lir, so we can put ,t down east of the mountains much cheaper than the fir mills can do, but '.f they want we can give them all the ir they need as we hau- contracted for -o million feet of lir on the stump and lave 1) years to cut it in. We have the same amount of each spruce and cedar Hid as fast as they glow up we shall close contracts for much again. We mve 10 to 12 years to cut it in. We cutting about as much ou each halt' section as they want In clear about o 25 acres. AS'e have about to acres of the iincst timber avatl- ible to us which wi; have now so sttr- and cut into, so ue will get the vhole of it and our lumber hen- gous jver feet to the acre. You see we lave about 150 to 175 million feet of -imber in sight; it costs DO cents per ihousand ft. on the stump and S3.00 in >ummer and 53.50 in winter to got it ogged and delivered to our ship at mill; so the logs that cut liUO to ou '.he Sound we get for 33.50 and -ii fact we can sell lumber cheaper nan they buy their logs; but time vill tell who become millionaires or 'aupers. We like it well our family, jut Stillman's folks are homesick, ami guess they will go buck to Minnesota iretty soon, as lie thinks it is too hard vork in the mill. JJuekley has 'M) to 00 inhabitants, a good hotel, two good tores, another hotel to be buiit, good chool house, etc.: there are 15 or 10 lew houses under construction: it is a plendidspil about here.level and black is any of the prairies around Albert ea. There are three shingle mills vithin two miles of this town. The own has all been built since last Vugust. I fear 1 have strung this 'tit too much; now visit us and I will ell you the rest. Truly yours, AV. P. Buckley, T., March In Jlemoriiun. At a recent meeting of Kobson Post, G. A.

One of the largest holders and deal- ers in mining and railroad stocks in he northwest, who has all along been "amiliar with the preliminary dealings f the great steel combine" witli its of capital, admits to a reporter that at present the outlook "or small mine-owners is not at all mght and the combination, with the present tendency of combinations, may drive many of them to the wall. Accentuating the above, the Chicago Inter Ocean, the high-tariff organ par ixcellence says: ''The iron trade has >een in a bad shape for a long time and the negotiations entered into by ;hese three great firms will, if con- summated, effectually put an end to ocal competitio_n, will restore prices ,o a firmer basis, and strengthen the market materially." We call the attention of the public to the above statement so unbluslt- ngly put forward and remind said mblic that they are directly in conflict with the reiterated promises and pre- dictions of every advocate of trade re- striction in this or any other country. The promise of protection, per se, las been that it always tends to craite and encourage local competition, which in turn tends to reduce the price of the protected article, until linaly it can be sold below the price of the foreign product coming into competition with t; and thus that in this way protection always tends to lower, not higher, Drices. On the other hand, 'we now have an acknowledged high-tariff journal asert- ing that, after twenty-five and more years of protection such as the world never before heard of, the steel-rail makers of the United States have just succeeded, by combining their capital, in effectually putting an end to all local competition, in restoring prices to their former higher basis, and in this way have constituted the work- ingman, on the one hand, and the con- suming public, on the other, their unresisting and helpless slaves.
